House of Hamill
May 18 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$15
“Their songs are always on the edge of traditional and innovation . . . their performances are electrifying”. – Sarah MacArthur, Highlander Radio
House of Hamill features Brian Buchanan of Enter the Haggis and Rose Baldino of Burning Bridget Cleary.
Their music has been described as “Radiohead meets Riverdance”; Celtic-inspired, exciting, eclectic and unpredictable. House of Hamill’s music occupies a space between traditional Irish music and sophisticated indie/pop.
Together, they write unusual, new fiddle tunes and exciting, unpredictable original songs while breathing new life into traditional and contemporary songs. Both are confident and unique lead vocalists, and the blend of their two voices in harmony is hypnotic and irresistible.
Whether House of Hamill is playing songs from their debut album “Wide Awake” (2016) or stomping through a set of original jigs and reels from their follow-up “March Through Storms” (2018), their chemistry onstage is always engaging and often hilarious. Spend an hour listening and you’ll leave with tired feet, a huge smile, and a new appreciation for the versatility of folk instruments in a modern context.
